Hi spinaltap,

The mole would have to be biopsied to know for sure what it is.
Are benign moles common in your family? If not then you do need to have this checked by a doctor.

The anxiety is caused by not knowing what is going on. Doctors help us know what is going on. I don't like going to a doctor either, but it is important to take care of your body and sometimes the body needs a doctor.

You can change how are you are thinking about doctors. Fear is not a good reason to avoid doctors. You should be more afraid of serious disease than of doctors.

I have keratosis on my back that are developing and getting bigger. They are flat, not round, and sometimes itchy. I do suggest you get it checked to ease your worry.
